Summer Weather Continues Occasional Thunderstorm Threats Hot Humid
Our beautiful dry air mass thanks to the offshore storm on the satellite view is coming to an end. We will now transition to a warmer more humid remainder of the week with occasional chances for thunderstorms from time to time. Nothing is in the cards tonight. The air is dry. The radars are nice and quiet. Skies will be clear tonight and it will be a relatively pleasant nice with lows in the 60s to near 70 degrees.
Tuesday will be borderline hot and definitely more humid with some sunshine. We have no major cold fronts approaching until the weekend so it is a matter of weak upper air disturbances moving along in the flow. As each one goes by the humidity goes down a little and then comes back up a bit. Look for sun and clouds for Tuesday and the chance for scattered late day and evening thunderstorms.
Highs will be in the mid 80s to around or just over 90. Wednesday we take the humidity down slightly with sunshine, very warm to hot conditions, and highs in the upper 80s to some lower 90s. For now we are going to leave showers out of the forecast for Wednesday.
Thursday is the 4th of July and it will be a beach day with sun and clouds. Another weak upper air disturbance goes by with a scattered thunderstorm or two possible. Highs Thursday will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s and it will be on the humid side.
On to Friday and the weekend as the chance for thunderstorms will increase somewhat especially over the weekend. But there will be some sun and clouds as well. It will be very warm to hot with highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s each day. This weekend a front approaches and takes all weekend to move through so this will enhance the chance for thunderstorms.
On the days where there is a thunderstorm risk we emphasize that much of the time it will be rain free and wide open for doing summer fun things be it the beach or the pool or whatever you decide. It will be a matter of whether you are in the target zone on any given day and expect that zone to move around a bit. Some days you may get one, other days you won’t. It is summer weather in the 1st week of July and it is playing according to form.
